Not On My Watch - Thoughts on White Privilege, Racism, and Standing Up for Good.

Signs available locally and free printout link here.

These are troubled times. What has been long ignored has festered and is rising to the surface. 

I am here to say, in no uncertain terms, I will not allow bigotry, racism, or discrimination in my home or circles of influence.

Last year, in the wake of the presidential election, I wrote: dear friends, neighbors, fellow humans of every color, gender, creed, faith/non-faith, and orientation, in the face of vitriolic current events, I see you. 

You belong here just as much as I do.

Frederick J. Fosher, Aug. 28, 1932 - July 31, 2017.

Yesterday we interred the ashes of my grandfather, who passed two weeks prior. 

My head is swimming full of half-formed sentences of what to say about this beloved grandfather, great-grandfather, husband, father, and friend.

Instead I find that words have left me and the tears have come.
